Chico Taxpayers Association landed a house on Ann Schwab – how will she run our town without stealing from our phone bill?

7 Nov

Thanks to a group of hardworking individuals who came together to stop an illegal taking by an incompetent government.

I didn’t know what to expect when we started this fight, I just knew, we had to fight.  I felt like Henny Penny at first, but my Gramma always told me, “when you’re in trouble, don’t be afraid to ask for help.” She was right – I was joined by a core group of wonderful people who worked hard to defeat this ill-conceived measure. Frankly, all it took was TELLING PEOPLE. The usual response, in exactly these words, “NO WAY!”  

Given the balance in this town of publicly employed people to working people, I was almost sure this Measure would pass.  But, I also noticed – even Ann treated Measure J like a hot potato – once she penned the ‘argument in favor,” she dropped that hot wad and never picked it up again.  She was a lot more worried about keeping her butt in that chair than how she would pay for it. 

And how is she going to pay?   How is she going to pay for this?

I’m sorry, I’m just going to kick back in my bunker and enjoy the next four years of “Fat Lady Flounders on Rocks” .
